Description

I had found this area while running near the Owens River in Bishop,CA.in the early '90s. My friend Vern Clevenger had wanted me to show him this spot. On this day I watched as thunderstorms were building and I new the sunflowers were at peak bloom. I called Vern and said "it's looking good, let's go!". We both chose different compositions. I positioned my camera low enough to have the flowers merge close toghether to express their density. I bracketed some exposures as the light and ray's changed.
